Job's not locked down yet, but it's close, and I'll need to know my rough cost of living. I've done some googling, got a good idea of how much studios and 1-brs in the area are, but if anyone can add more "flavor" (what's the area "like", any entertainment nearby, etc.), that would be great.

1. Budget - Looks like $600-900 is do-able in the area, does that get you decent places or dungheaps?
2. House/Condo/Townhome? - Won't be buying, apt./fourplex/separate suite in larger house all OK.
3. Employment Status(commute/work from home) Working on Ashford Dunwoody just inside Perimeter.
4. Children - All done grown.
5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference - I'll mostly be a homebody, but might spend some Friday and Saturday nights hunting down good jazz clubs.
6. Easy access to public transit, important or not? - Yes; might be carless, at least for a while.
7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood. Middle/Upper class. Low crime.
